if you are thinking about the redskins, think about the line- up they started with and think about the changes now. it is almost a whole new team. >> the ravens were awful offensively but they weren't awful defensively. they did a a half job there on defense. it is kind of what they do every week. i would much rather have that ravens defense than the refuse skins at this point. >> i would be fine with never having a super bowl in jacksonville or having a monday night football game featuring the jacksonville jaguars. >> i'm with out that one. talk a little bit more about the redskins now as we got to hear from some of the guys yesterday. heard from the coach. heard from john beck to say put the blame on me for what happened on sunday. what did you think about the comments? he said the right things. he wants to step up but it is the play on the field. i was underwhelmed by john beck on sunday.
5:50 am
it is early, to be fair. he didn't play awful but he didn't impress me. >> i thought he played pretty well for not making a start in the last four years. it is the defense that is letting the redskins down of late, especially the rushing defense. you can't allow a team to come out and found and ground it for 175 yards and expect to win those games. >> which one of the injuries do you think is the most critical at this point because it is a laundry list of guys that are down. >> i think it is santana moss. >> you lose your top receive fore five to seven weeks. i think with hightower going down, can you fill in with torain and bring up roister. i think the loss of moss hurts the most. >> okay. world series last night. the tony larussa communication gaffe. how that is possible with all the communication devices we have in 2011 that you have no idea who is warming up for your team? >> that is crazy. i couldn't believe it when i heard it. and also the possible -- we

can't confirm this yet but maybe albert pujols actually called the hit and run. i never even heard of that where a player called himself. you have to be lucky and good and right now texas is getting a break. murphy's ball that goes offer his leg that prevented the double play. everyone safe there. but to go back to st. louis, it will be cold and it will be damp and wet. don't count the cards out yet. texas does not like that type of weather. >> would still used land lines. can't they actually use a text message or something like that to let somebody know you should be warming up in the bullpen. >> that is exactly what you would think. >> i agree that land lines are outdated but they sound better than most cell phone scwhriens they only sound good when there is not 60,000 people in your house trying to listen at the same time. >> yesterday, we saw alex ovechkin got his statue unveiled.
5:52 am
if they did a wax statue of one of the junkies, which one. you would be best represented down at madam tussaud. >> i think cakes would be the best because he is bald in you go to the wax museum, i think you're a moron. >> okay, cakes is out. >> i'll take it. >> all right. i'll give you support when they unveil it down there. >> thank you. we'll go though that. we'll see if we get eb down there. >> making fun of the wax figures. come on. a parking headache in downtown bethesda is about to get even worse. you think things are bad now? just wait. two popular lots shutting down. we've got what you need to know coming up next after the break.

>> for those who work and visit downtown bethesda, it could be a long three years. it isn't a secret that bethesda is expanding and growing. they haven't really thought practically about the employees that are staffing all of these stores and retail spaces here besides the customers. >> reporter: this business owner is more optimistic. >> it is not all that big of a deal i think mostly because i think most people know when they come down here to use metro, public transportation or there are other places to park, other garages to park at. >> reporter: during construction, the county plans to increase the number circulator buses on the road and boost short-term parking in garages like this one on bethesda avenue opening that will ease the pain. >> prepare for it. it is all can you do. how much is enough? that is the question being asked by a local college student. a major charity is contesting her inheritance saying it
